Terms of Use

These terms and conditions govern your use (“you”, “your”) of the XDEFI Wallet (defined below) and related services (“Terms”).

1. THESE TERMS AND INFORMATION ABOUT XDEFI

1.1 Parties to these Terms

These Terms apply between you and XDEFI Technologies Ltd (“XDEFI”, “we” “our”), a company organised under the laws of the British Virgin Islands as a business company with its registered address at Trinity Chambers, PO Box 4301, Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands‑.

1.2 Acceptance of these Terms

You acknowledge and agree that by submitting your registration to use our services or by using any part of the XDEFI services (including the XDEFI Wallet), you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.  If you do not accept these Terms, you are not permitted to use the XDEFI Wallet or our services.

2. XDEFI features

2.1 What we do

2.1.1 We provide a web browser extension for managing supported digital currency using a blockchain distributed consensus system and supported by cryptography (Cryptocurrency).  Our web browser extension serves as a digital wallet (having ‘Hierarchical Deterministic’ (HD) properties) in relation to these Cryptocurrencies which allows you to:

2.1.1.1 receive and store units of account in relation to Cryptocurrency;

2.1.1.2 transfer Cryptocurrency where Transfer or Transferring means a cryptographically signed message instructing a ledger transfer of units of account in relation to Cryptocurrency from one Cryptocurrency wallet to another;

2.1.1.3 connect to supported and compatible blockchain applications;

2.1.1.4 enable swaps between supported Cryptocurrencies and each other and/or fiat currency (Swaps); and

2.1.1.5 access certain native decentralized finance features.

2.1.2 XDEFI Wallet operates locally on your computer as a non-custodial‑ wallet.  These Terms set out a licence for the use of the XDEFI Wallet, and not the provision of a service from XDEFI.  In the operation of XDEFI Wallet, XDEFI Wallet interacts with Cryptocurrencies and third party services, but there is no interaction between the XDEFI Wallet and XDEFI (other than the optional provision of your contact details set out in clause 12).

3. WARNING of RISK

3.1 You acknowledge that Cryptocurrencies are new and relatively untested.  They carry inherent risks (that are outside of our control) as they have technical vulnerabilities, may undergo a community led change in operating model or technical features (often referred to as a fork) and their regulatory status may change at any time in any one or multiple jurisdictions.  In addition to this, the value of Cryptocurrencies are subject to market forces and their value is not backed by any government or other entity.

3.2 We make no warranties, representations, guarantees or equivalent (whether express or implied) as to the value, utility or legal status of any Cryptocurrencies.

3.3 Before using the XDEFI Wallet, or Transferring Cryptocurrency, you should ensure you have carried out adequate research into the risks and disadvantages of Cryptocurrency and have sufficient understanding of the functionality, usage and storage of Cryptocurrency and Cryptocurrency wallets.  By Transferring Cryptocurrency to the XDEFI Wallet you confirm to XDEFI that you have carried out such research, and understand and accept the risks and disadvantages of Cryptocurrency.

3.4 You acknowledge that the Swaps functionality is experimental in nature.  Swaps interacts with, and relies on, third party applications.  We make no representations or warranties of any kind regarding these third party applications, including but not limited to representations and warranties of compliance, availability, or security.  You acknowledge and agree that your use of Swaps subjects you to the terms of service of any third party application and that you are solely responsible for evaluating each application.  We are not an exchange and we do not offer exchange services of any kind.

3.5 You expressly acknowledge and agree that as the XDEFI Wallet is: (a) not a service; and (b) non-custodial software, you are solely responsible for your activity and any risk of loss at all times, including when using Swaps.  As such, we make no representations or warranty that the Swaps feature is compliant with laws in any jurisdiction, and you are solely responsible for making any such determination with respect to your use of Swaps.

4. Fees

4.1 Transfer Fee

Each Transfer will attract a transaction fee (also known as a mining fee) in the normal manner for transfers of units of account in relation to Cryptocurrency between two Cryptocurrency wallets.

4.2 Swap Fee

Each Swap will be subject to the terms and provided at the exchange rate and other rates of the relevant third party provider of the Swap.  As the provider of the XDEFI Wallet, XDEFI may receive a commission in relation to each Swap (whether natively via the mechanisms of the relevant Cryptocurrency, directly from the Swap provider, or otherwise), however such commission shall be calculated and arranged separate to the relevant Swap (and such commission shall not be deducted from the rates set out for the relevant Swap).

5. REGISTRATION AND IDENTITY

5.1 Credentials

When setting up your XDEFI Wallet, you will be responsible for keeping your own account secrets, which may be a twelve-word‑ seed phrase, an account file, or other locally stored secret information (“Private Key”).

5.2 Local encryption

We encrypt your account information (including the Private Key) locally with a password you provide, that we never send to our servers.  You agree to: (a) never use the same password for the XDEFI Wallet that you have ever used outside of this service, (b) keep your secret information, Private Key and password confidential and not share them with anyone else and (c) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your XDEFI Wallet or breach of security.  We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this clause 5.

6. RESTRICTED JURISDICTIONS AND SANCTIONS

6.1 Restricted Jurisdictions
